    What sort of drops can I doon an FSR 120 :)

    I am not extreme by any means...but as there is now a lovely new allmountain board I thought I'd ask.

    Is it safe to do 2-3 foot drops (to transition probably) for example on an FSR 120? Or is likely to explode into many bits...or remain intact...but bent?

    I've got an '06 Stumpy FSR that I have taken off 3-4 footers to flat and trany both without any problems. I only weigh 155lbs so that may have something to do with it. The thing that scares me about having to hit a drop or little jump on my bike isn't the amount of air its the geometry of the bike. I feel like I'm sitting way too far over the front wheel when I hit something like that. I think its just because I am used to hitting these same drops and jumps on my freeride bike.
